Section 1 of the bill requires the election of the commissioner of
insurance. Sections 6 and 7 make conforming amendments.
Section 2 repeals and reenacts existing statutes requiring the
governor to appoint members of the air quality control commission to
require the election of all commissioners.
Section 3 requires the election of the voting members of the oil
and gas conservation commission.
Section 4 requires the election of all members of the public
utilities commission, and section 5 makes conforming amendments.
Sections 2 through 5 become effective on January 1, 2024.
Because the Colorado constitution requires the appointment of the
commissioner of insurance, sections 1, 6, and 7 only become effective on
January 1, 2024, if, based on the passage of a concurrent resolution and
a vote of the people, the governor declares a vote at a general election to
change the Colorado constitution to require the election of the
commissioner of insurance.
Sections 2 and 4 also require that an elected commissioner's oath
of office include a commitment to prioritizing energy reliability and
reducing consumer costs above all other considerations in making
decisions as a commissioner.
